The Community Enrichment Project hosted a "Super Leaders Read" reading circle at Capitol View Library in Washington, D.C. for ages 8-12. The reading circle was a safe space for young readers to read positive social justice stories, learn about community activism, and think about ways they too can be community leaders.
